everybody in the audience. but bob wiener was sitting to my right. he was a chief spokesperson at ondcp during the clinton administration. and bob not only helped with others to certainly organize this, but his continued energy and commitment to the drug issue over the years has really made this possible, and i appreciate everything he's done. [applause] well, i know, i think it's probably most appropriate that i start off with what's probably consumed the media quite a bit over the last several years. let me talk about marijuana. i know that was something that i make it a -- i may get a question about later on, i'm just supposing. as you know, possession of small amounts of marijuana by an adult became legal in two states, colorado and washington. those are both proposition or initiative states, and it was on their ballot. and those initiatives -- and there are differences, by the way, between the two states and what they passed. they really present all of us, health care professionals, school administrators, so many others, elected official, law enforcement, they really present us wit
, and the ticket guy goes, okay, let 'em through, and they went through. >> host: temple city, california. hi, bob. >> caller: am i really on or no? >> host: yes, you are. >> caller: okay. mr. elder, you're the best. i've been listening to you. 38 year withs army, three wars, blown up in iraq, 32 years hapd. that's not my question. my question is when are you going to stop playing around d lack of words -- and run for president? [laughter] >> guest: two things could happen if i run. one of them is i could win, the other one is i could lose, and both of them are bad. [laughter] but thank you for that. i've given it some thought, seriously, and i came this close to running for senate against barbara boxer, and i flew to d.c., and i met a bunch of senators. my be arena lost by ten points, i could have. >> host: larry elder, what do you think about the kerfuffle around dr. ben carson? >> guest: i like dr. carson, and i thought that it was pretty gutsy for him to have said what he said right in front of the president, advocating the use of health savings accounts to deal with medical issues. and i'm no
through that. but i can guarantee you this. i think all of you know because of bob mueller's service, and the extra years that people passed a law to allow him to serve, there is no more dedicated or capable leader of the f.b.i. and there is nobody more committed to do this. i have confidence in that. i also have confidence in something else. this president of the united states made it clear once before that he would do what was necessary to bring somebody to justice. and i guarantee you he has made it clear yet again that we will find justice here. and the president will do what is necessary. our hope is to work with the libyan government and do this through a process. >> i'll submit further questions for the record, mr. chairman. >> go to william keating of massachusetts. >> thank you, mr. chairman. thank you, mr. secretary, for being here. i know that both of us, although we are here, part of us are still back home in massachusetts this morning. getting to the theme of this morning's hearing, your theme of small smart investments is right on point. i couldn't agree with it more. o
